Numerous experts from the pharma & life science industry gathered at a very special event in Moscow recently. The “Gerresheimer Pharma Day Moscow“ was held 23 and 24 September 2009 by the Gerresheimer Group for their East European customers. The ten specialist talks of the advanced programme provided background knowledge regarding pharmaceutical primary packaging and drug delivery systems from various viewpoints. The focus was on future-oriented production technologies for ampoules and vials as well as the filling of sterile syringes, specific requirements for primary packaging materials for biopharmaceutics and the application of eye drops, across the sectors of glass and plastics. Gerresheimer CEO Dr. Max Raster welcomed guests representing practically all pharmaceutical fields at a high level to the two-day lecture event held at the Moscow World Trade Center. During the event in Moscow, Gerresheimer invited a number of prestigious external speakers, including Shcherbinina Galina, quality control manager for the Moscow pharma manufacturer Petrovax. Ms. Galina reported on positive experiences with the use of Gerresheimer RTF syringe systems for vaccines in large-scale technological operations. It was with a contract for such systems, that Gerresheimer entered the syringe business in the Russian pharma market in 2006. The first Gerresheimer Pharma Day was held in Bnde und Halle (Westphalia/Germany) in March 2009. Burkhard Lingenberg, director of marketing and communication for the Gerresheimer Group, said: The interest in the widely varied lectures and the lively discussions and conversations about them highlight how valuable such know-how transfer is for further development in our highly specialized fields. We will continue this path with repeated new and topical subject areas.
